Becky’s Freku: Like a River

I have recently learned about a new poem style known as a freku. It begins with a free verse poem and then concludes with a summarizing haiku; hence the term freku. This is my second try with such a poem.


Like a river that gently comes and goes,

The day opens and flows before me.

Like a river that turns and bends, it unfolds

With unknown events; hidden and unseen.

And like a river softly forever lapping in a

Continuous tinkling stream,

I must trustingly wade through this new day

By walking with the Lord in faith and

Letting him lead me the way.

Like a river that

Flows, must keep on trusting and

Faithfully follow.
